Gonzalo Camacho gives Exeter good start but the Chiefs fall short

Second try of the season for Gonzalo Camacho

Argentine winger, Gonzalo Camacho had a slow start to the season and took until round 19 to score his first try for the Exeter Chiefs. But after such a long wait for his first try, Camacho had now scored two in three matches as he went over for the first try of the match vs the Northampton Saints at Sandy Park on Sunday. Camacho showed his speed and agility to get past to get past the first tackler and then after going down together with two other defenders he had the presence to get up and dive over for the try. Despite being tackled, Northampton had failed to secure him on the ground, allowing him to score the five pointer.  

The match was a key game as it determined which of the two clubs would go into the final round of the Aviva Premiership in the Top Four. With the win, Northampton now appear certain to join Harlequins, Leceister and Saracens in the Semi Finals. The bonus point loss was not a sad day for Exeter, however, as the club in just its second season of top flight rugby has guaranteed itself an appearance in next seasons Heineken Cup as the club  is secure in the top six regardless of what happens in the final round of play.
